Here's how it works:
Cataract Canyon is a 95 Mile section of the Colorado River between Potash and Lake Powell (Hite Marina). I'm betting that I'll be able to do this section in under 20 Hours. On the 24th of July I plan to leave Potash at 3am and arrive at Hite before 11pm.
Here's the deal:
If I don't make it in time I'll donate $10 in your name to American Whitewater.
If I make it within the allotted time then you have to donate $10 to American Whitewater.
Reasons why you should play along.
1. Either way American Whitewater will benefit. Thus we all benefit.
2. I've never done this section so I honestly have no idea if this is possible or not.
3. If I don't make it you effortlessly donate money to AW and it costs you nothing.
4. The longest distance I've ever paddled in 1 Day is about 45 miles or so...this would be over twice that.
$10 Donation Commitments Thus Far:
